Phalanx – acrylic and charcoal on canvas

phalanx - frustration and struggle

Once more, this was a struggle to complete. Lots of slashing strokes and scratching into the paint film dominate the surface. I like the rhythm of this – the push and pull of the strokes.

My state of mind was as filled with frustration and struggle as the broken and scarred surface suggests. This seems to be a feature of many of my paintings as they evolve from one layer to the next and one idea to the next.
